**SOMETHING EXTRA TO GIVE THANKS FOR** Patrick John Guthrie arrive 2 weekds early - 8lbs. - 18" at 12:45 11/23/10 Big Ed, Mom, Lil' Ed, and baby are all doing fine I added a new widget to AuntSpicy's new "100 Quilts" program. Join in and help donate a quilt to a local charity for those in need during this holiday season.
I am recovering from a 3-day community artisians' show - very successful. There were times you couldn't breathe it was so crowded. I did some stitches there - very few. I came home and got some things in progress - so pictures of my relaxing work.
I loved the Jelly Roll quilt along, so of course just had to do the Layer Cake. I have a mix of Koyoto and Frosty Fat Quarters that are working well together and should make for a lovely soft quilt.
A scrappy tree block using my 1.5" squares - yes I love to work with tiny pieces, either in paper piecing or regular piecing. These will be sashed with a "red brick" and black corner stones. I have some left over black/muslin and red/muslin 9-patches that might get worked into the final border.
And I am leasurely piecing the first step of Bonnie Hunter's new mystery - finding I don't have a lot of pinks in my stash/scraps, hopefully there is enough to use here without buying any more fabric. Pink, orange, and purple are out of my comfort color zones. Do you have a color you avoid?
And some cross stitch spring Mandela designs - yes I am looking forward to spring before the major part of winter is even here. Lilacs and thistles - funny, there's those pinks and purples. I love them in stitcheries, but not fabric - how odd.
I have watched a couple of Bing Crosby/Bob Hope "road" movies. They are pretty much the same story line no matter which "road" - song, dance, and fight over the same pretty girl.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving week and remember to give thanks to those in need,
